This semester I would like to get better at multiplication and division. I would like to get better at multiplication and division because I want to be able to do hard problems off the top of my head .I would also like to improve my grammar and punctuation because I’m a good writer but when I want to make my writing more exciting I am not sure where to put the punctuation or grammar. Finally, I would like to be involved in class discussions and let my opinion be heard.
Prediction: I predict this is going to include Doubling
Question: What is the weight of 7 bricks if three and a half bricks equal 7kg?
work out: First I found out that 3 and a half was half of 7. so I doubled 7 and got the answer of 14 kg
strategy: the strategy I used was break the problem into small parts because I doubled 3 and a half then I doubled 7
prediction: I predict this is going to include my times tables
Question: How many numbers between 20 and 31 are divisible by 3?
Work Out: First I said my 3 times tables up to 31 in my head 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30. I only went up to 30 because it says between 20 and 31 and if I went higher it would be greater than 31 it would be 33. The I realized that it said between 20 so I went to 7×3 and that was 21 it was past 20 so that was the lowest I could start on.
Answer: The answer is 4 because there were 4 groups of 3 between 20 and 31.
Strategy: The strategy I used was break the problem up because I solved the problem one step at a time.
predict: I predict this question is going to involve Multiplication.x.
Question: How many numbers are divisible by 8 between 17 and 61?
Work out: to work this problem out I had to recite all the 8 times tables between 17 and 61.
Answer: The final answer for this problem was 5.
Mathematicians Toolbox: the strategy I used from the mathematicians toolbox was break the problem into small parts because I said the time tables over separately to make sure I was right.

It was 1:30 pm I was sitting eating my lunch when suddenly `I got a pain in my arm`. It really hurt! So I went and told my mum and she gave me a great idea. I would trace my steps throughout the whole morning and see what time it was when I hurt myself. So I got up and started thinking. `What did I did when I got up`. Then I remembered I knocked my arm on bed when I got up and it started to throb. So mum said she would take me to Doctor. She never did!!!!
